Dragon Was Terrible by Kelly DiPucchio and illustrated by Greg Pizzoli
Honestly, this book is adorable! Dragon is terrible, because that’s how dragons are. The king and his villagers are resolved to tame him and even promise a reward. I love that the resolution to the situation speaks to the power of a good story. The promised reward was the cherry on top.
Dragon Was Terrible is illustrated by Greg Pizzoli, a favorite author/illustrator of mine (The Watermelon Seed). I am so happy that DiPucchio and Pizzoli have partnered for this new book. I think it will appeal to preschoolers who are developing their sense of humor, and of course younger elementary aged children.
